Stroke Support

According to the National Stroke Association, every year over 750,000 Americans experience a stroke. Did you know that an individual who has had a stroke is almost 15% more likely to have a second stroke within one year of the first incident? And within five years of a stroke, over 24% of women and 42% of men will have a second?

  • Find out if you have atrial fibrillation (an irregular heartbeat which allows blood to pool in the heart and cause blood clots)
  • Quit smoking
  • Limit alcohol
  • Monitor your cholesterol levels
  • Manage your diabetes
  • Exercise
  • Eat foods low in sodium and fat
  • Monitor circulation problems with the help of your doctor
